Town Logo Competition

As you can see, at the moment we have a generic little phpbb "creating communities" logo.
It is oh so very happy, and extremely generic.
Bleh.

We do, however, have the option of creating and uploading our own logo, so I am allowing people to submit ideas and pictures for our new logo.
I'd like it to be about the same size as the one we have, so make it around 200px by 100px.

I'm not sure how long I'll have the competition running, and when/how I'll choose the winners, but I thought I'd go ahead and throw this out here so people can start thinking.
Who knows, maybe if you submit something quick we'll go ahead and use it.
Exachix

I'll get right on it sir =P.

The actual current logo size is 200x91 by the way.
NecroPaladin

As will I. To work!

I'm aware. I just wanted around the same size, as I said.
Exachix

=P. ok... just.. I'll shut up now =).

Well, here's a simple dive at it:


Ms Elaneous

Alrighty then. Old Photoshop skills... AWAY! *dashes off in cape*
Shadow of the Sun

It should be the avatar of an iconic character.

The choices there are Aesa, Gent etc.

Might be a bad idea. Who knows how many people will be arguing over which character should be on the logo (and by "which character", I mean their own characters.)
Uberblah

Well I'd put my vote in for Gent and Aesa both. Every player here knows both of them, and don't they know each other? That's my opinion.
Shadow of the Sun

It works, also, they are the iconic characters of both Vael and Sophistemon, who created this place.

If any characters should have a place on the logo, it's them.
Wukei

I just picked an already drawn/colored picture for my own logo...I figured since he was sleeping it was perfect. I can't draw on the computer, so that idea would be useless...
The_Librarian

Spoiler:



*insert blurb here*
Exachix

Woa..

That looks so cool.
NecroPaladin

Ooh, I LIKE that one!
Exachix

I just had a bandwidth killing idea!

Why not... have the thing in the corner logo thing an animation. Have some set text like 'Enupnion' and have the background cycling through characters on a subtle fade animation thing,
Vael

Annnnnd we now have Libris's logo in a subSilver format of the forums.
myfs_enupnion1 is the name of the template.
Vael


The first word apparently is distasteful to Sophistemon, but I don't think he can deny that is a lot of what Town is about.
Wukei

Great...but you spelled it wrong...
Vael

Don't know what you're talking about. >.>
Geomancer

Maybe put Magic and Adventure first? Then Love?
Uberblah

They both look good. But I like Exy's idea a lot. If it's possible, we should definitely do that.
Geomancer

I like his idea too, but thats an awful lot of characters to include. Why not one for every player?
Timberwolf

I'm trying something, learning a new programme while I'm at it so the results won't be quite what I'm used to. Anyway, I'll put it up when it's done.

Edit.
Fax Celestis

I say a flag. We're a town, after all.
Uberblah

I keep randomly switching between the phpbb pic and the sword and lightning pic. Why?
Sophistemon

I would assume that that is because you do not have your Board Style set to "myfs_enupnion1".

The_Librarian, I very much like your logo. Wukei's, too. Very, very nice work.

I remain unsure about the bandwidth-slaughtering animated logo. While novel, would it not have to be updated with every new Townie?

As for me finding the word "love" distasteful, I just felt that other words could have been a better fit.
Uberblah

How do I change board style?
Sophistemon

Click "Profile" and scroll down to "Preferences". You will see "Board Style" on the left with a selection box on the right. Find "myfs_enupnion1" and click it, then head down and hit "Submit".

I kinda only meant a few people.. not everyone... but then arguments would happen.

Maybe small pictures of places or something...

Well I could have been more accurate and said "constant, daily, steamy cyber sex," but somehow I doubt you'd find that tasteful either. =P

Fine, I concede defeat. You win, Vael.

This time.
Fax Celestis

I said flag. Flag you shall have:









...just a few. I have more.
Timberwolf

And here is my effort.


I'm not that happy with it and I suck at logo design, but I tried anyway.

Romance, then. I think that is a fair compromise in this case. *shrugs*
Sophistemon

Hey, wow! I like those.

Maybe we could make it switch through logos, instead of characters.
Exachix

Maybe we could =).

It was just an idea! It can be adapted.
Sophistemon

I'll talk to Vael about it and see what he thinks.

Yes, yes. I go for "aesthetically pleasing" over "rules legit."

Kids these days!

In all seriousness, there are reasons for those rules. They create images that are easy to distinguish and understand from a distance. Find me a national flag created before, say, 1950, that violates major heraldic rules; chances are you can't, and it's for more reasons than tradition.

Entirely granted. However, we are in the digital age, where everything is nice and clear (and potentially infinitely scalable with vector).
Ms Elaneous


Here's one of mine. I just wanted to throw it out there. I'll make some more on the morrow now that I've finally got some ideas for what I want to do.
Wukei

oh...nice..stick that one on the black one, Vael!
Sophistemon

I love it! Wonderful work!
J. Muller

That is really excellent, Ms. E.

I nth any suggestion to make that the logo.
Fax Celestis



Final version of flag.

EDIT: Reina has provided me with a "cleaner" version of the flag.

Sophistemon

I like that, too!
Ms Elaneous

@J. Muller, Soph, Wukei: ^_^" I'm glad you guys liked it. I had fun making it really. I can't wait to throw a few more out.

@Fax Celestis: I love the snake/celtic knot bit. I mean, that is what it is like. Very nifty! ^_^

It's so very wrong. Sigh.

If you want to design a heraldic crest with similar themes, I'd be more than willing to assist.

Sounds good; let's talk at some point.

Dallas_Dakota

However, if my idea is accepted,I'l make it better, as in no liney ripples and showing of pixalizage...
